Let f: (A,\({\mathfrak m},k)\to (B,{\mathfrak n},\ell)\) be a local flat homomorphism of noetherian local rings, with fibre \(\bar B=B/{\mathfrak m}B\). If \(\pi^*(A)\) denotes the homotopy Lie algebra of A (so that \(Ext^*\!_ A(k,k)\) is the universal enveloping algebra of \(\pi^*(A))\), it is known from work of Gulliksen [T. H. Gulliksen and G. Levin, ”Homology of local rings”, Queen’s papers Pure Appl. Math. 20 (Kingston, Ont. 1969; Zbl 0208.303)], the reviewer [Math. Ann. 228, 27-37 (1977; Zbl 0333.13011)] and M. André [Comment. Math. Helv. 57, 648-675 (1982; Zbl 0509.13007)], that there exist six-terms exact sequences of \(\ell\)-vector-spaces: \[ 0\to \pi^{2i-1}(\bar B)\to^{g^*}\pi^{2i-1}(B)\to^{f^*}\pi^{2i-1}(A)\otimes_ k\ell \to^{\delta^{2i-1}}\pi^{2i}(\bar B)\to^{g^*}\pi^{2i}(B)\to^{f^*}\pi^{2i}(A)\otimes_ k\ell \to 0 \] for every integer \(i\geq 1\), with furthermore \(\sum_{i>0}\dim Im(\delta^{2i-1})\leq e\dim \bar B-depth \bar B.\) The main result of the present paper shows Ker \(g^*\) is contained in the center of \(\pi^*(\bar B)\). As an application, the author shows that if A is attached to a regular local ring by a sequence of Golod epimorphisms, then the center of \(\pi^*(A)\) is concentrated in degrees 1 and 2, and conjectures this property holds for all local rings.
